Over the past few years we have become frustrated by the lack of discussion between people who disagree - real life shouldn't be like Twitter. So we decided to launch a podcast on our sister site, Research the News, where the focus is having conversations about difficult topics while fostering an environment to create productive dialogue and understand different perspectives. We have guests with viewpoints from all over the political spectrum, sometimes we research specific news topics, and sometimes we'll use a current news event to launch into a deeper discussion about a broader issue.

The mission is to have healthy dialogue with people of all backgrounds while promoting open discussions between people of differing viewpoints to search for common ground. We believe that what we need more of now is open, honest, and challenging dialogue between people of different backgrounds. We hope you check out the podcast here, and below is an embedded version of the show.
